You can share your favourite legend of course, but just in case, here are a few suggestions :
Merlin (Welsh: Myrddin, Cornish: Marzhin, Breton: Merzhin) is a mythological figure prominently featured in the legend of King Arthur and best known as an enchanter or wizard. His standard depiction, based on an amalgamation of historical and legendary figures, was introduced by the 12th-century British author Geoffrey of Monmouth. Geoffrey's rendering of the character was immediately popular, especially in Wales.
Book : Corrag (Un bûcher sous la neige) by Susan Fletcher
The book follows Corrag's life - all its ups and downs, her beautiful character never doing any harm to any living thing, through the tragic Glen Coe Massacre. It gives an insight as to how easily back then women could be judged as witches - magnificent description of the Highlands - Corrag's celebration of Hogmanay, celebration of new year's eve in scottish tradition.
